Any one ever used it? Did you love what you made? did It stink as so many say? what did you make?
Tell me tell me!
I just bought 10 skeins and am going to make a shawl/wrap.
All info from previous knitters gratefully received!

I guess no one's ever used it, Linda. Sorry.

RE: Sari silk

Thanks for the reply...
I just waded in, bought some, knit a sample to figure out my gauge and am now well into a shawl, triangular pattern.
It's not the easiest stuff to work with, mainly because of the slubs, and now that I am well into it, I wish I had knit another thread along with it to give some stability, but there are other shawls to knit.
And yes it wonderful shiny, vibrant and very funky!!
Stinks a little like kerosene or something similar...not offensive.
But to anyone who is considering trying it...I say go for it. I have 10 skeins of about 85 yards each...I hope that's enough.

RE: Sari silk

Sounds like something I did, I was browsing thru WM and saw some LB Fun Fur. I bought what they had plus some matching LB Homespun. I'm still looking for a pattern to use this stuff on. I've never used the Fun Fur before and it looks a little intimidating. I'm thinking I will have to use the two together (double strand it) to make it easier to handle.

Good luck with your project.
